How to Update Mobile Number in Metrobank Online Banking (MetrobankDirect)?

If your mobile number is not updated on your Metrobank Online Banking (MetrobankDirect), you will be having problems with some online banking transactions such as:
  • Fund Transfer to Unregistered Account
  • Enrolling 3rd Party Account to Metrobank Online Banking
  • etc.

Why are you going to have problems with those transactions?

Because fund transfer to unregistered account requires One Time Password (OTP). This OTP will be sent to your mobile number (mobile phone). The same with enrolling 3rd party account which also requires OTP.

If you're using a new mobile number, you cannot receive the OTP which is needed to be entered to those transactions. If your old mobile number (the one you indicated upon online banking enrollment) is lost because you lost your sim or phone, you need to update your mobile number.

Hi, I have downloaded the METROBANK APP on my phone and enrolled with my old email + other mobile number.
However I couldnt enter my old email anymore and wanted to put in a new email add. When i tried to do so, they wont accept anymore because ,my mobile number is already registered.
How can i remove the registered mobile number so i can use it again.
Mobile number: 0917932477

Putangina naman metrobank !! International bank kayo at ang major customers niyo is OFW para makapag-transact kami online. Sana alisin niyo yan OTP kasi walang kwenta yan sa amin mga OFW's kasi ang sim card natin sa pinas hindi gumagana sa lahat ng bansa mga putangina niyo kung sino man nagisip ng OTP na yan. Bakit hndi niyo gayahin ang RCBC instead na OTP may option sila na security questions ! Mga putangina niyo lalo na IT department niyo mga utak talanga. Tapos napaka-bagal sumagot ng mga customer service niyo sa telepono!! Ubos na load namin tangina "please wait" parin yun sinasabi. PUtangina niyo sana mag-invest naman kayo sa customer service niyo at online banking niyo. Tangina niyo kaya kayo nauunahan ng BDO at ibang mga bangko kasi mga puta na nga serbisyo niyo ambagal niyo pa !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nakaka'hassle naman pupunta pa sa designated branch na from where i applied my ATM just to change my number pano kung nasa Ajman ako tapos Abu Dhabi ako naka pag register. Sana lagyan naman ng option to change through online. And it's too costly na tatawag pa sa customer service then time wasting also. Sana yung hindi naman nakaka hassle.

All other options except option 2 is possible. They won't allow changes unless you go to the branch where you signed up personally. Option 4 is not possible. The system detects that you have an existing account already.

When I called they said that they no longer accept mobile changes and that I have to go to my branch to update my mobile number.
